This research focuses on the implementation of the Building with Nature (BwN) approach in the design of artificial coral reefs. The goal is to explore environmental preferences and design tools for coral development, considering both coral habitat potential and coastal protection services. The research also aims to optimize artificial reef...

Groynes are hydraulic structures commonly applied in the Dutch rivers. Depending on the water depth, groynes can be emerged or submerged. When a groyne is emerged, it has two main functions: maintaining the water depth in the main channel and preventing the river from eroding its bank. When the discharge in the river increases, the groynes...

Living Breakwaters have evolved from traditional breakwaters to create multi-purpose structures that provide environmental and social benefits. These breakwaters promote a healthy habitat for flora and fauna, while achieving the same structural capabilities as conventional structures. Reefy has developed a modular living breakwater that can...

Compound weirs are used as flow diversion structures by adding additional flow resistance to the anticipated regions at the rivers. Furthermore, they are used for measuring and regulating flow rates accurately over a wide range of flow depths. When they are used for this purpose, the cross sections are generally selected as symmetrical having...

Compound weirs can be used as flexibly adjustable structures to regulate the flow and the flow distribution over the cross-section. Examples are found in rivers to create additional resistance in one side of the river bifurcations. It is done to distribute the discharge among the branches properly. They are placed at the flood plains and become...

Marine biofouling is a major concern in the operational performance of submerged floating tunnels (SFTs). The objective of this research is to investigate the effects of marine fouling (represented by surface roughness) on the hydrodynamic behavior of SFTs, including the hydrodynamic forces on the SFT subject to current-only, wave-only, and...

Mangroves can function as a ‘bio-shield’ to protect coastal communities from harsh environments because of their strong ability to attenuate wave energy. However, as mangroves are usually oversimplified as rigid cylinders in antecedent studies, the effects of complex mangrove morphology on wave attenuation have not been well researched....

This study presents the structural response of a Submerged Floating Tunnel (SFT) subjected to earthquake loading and other relevant static loading types. The SFT is a competitive solution for crossings of deep seas, canals and fjords, as it is submerged in water and floats at a fixed submersion depth. It is supported by its buoyancy and tethers,...

In this research, the influence of the permeability and the porosity of artificial reefs on wave transmission and the sheltered habitat of marine life is investigated. A physical model is used to find the answer to this question. <br/>The main finding of this research is that a hollow, perforated structure can act both as an artificial reef that...

The objective of this master thesis is to investigate experimentally how non-breaking wave loading affects the stability of the MOSES artificial reefs, an artificial reef by the company ReefSystems. Small scale wave flume tests with a length scale factor of 20 were conducted in the Scheldt flume at Deltares in Delft to determine the stability of...

The submerged floating tunnel (SFT), also called an Archimedes Bridge, is a new type of infrastructure for wide and deep sea-crossings, regarded as one of the alternatives to bored and immersed tunnels and bridges. It is afloat in water employing its buoyancy and a support system to balance its self-weight. However, no prototype SFT has yet been...

In order to assess the dynamic performance of a submerged floating tunnel (SFT) subject to flow-induced vibration (FIV) conditions in a practical engineering application, a one-way fluid–structure interaction (FSI) model consisting of multi-scale hydrodynamic solvers combined with the finite element method (FEM) is established. A typical long...

Engineered and natural submerged coastal structures (e.g., submerged breakwaters and reefs) modify incident wave fields and thus can alter hydrodynamic processes adjacent to coastlines. Although submerged structures are generally assumed to promote beach protection by dissipating waves offshore and creating sheltered conditions in their lee,...

A submerged floating tunnel (SFT) is a structure that has been proposed as an innovative solution for waterway crossings around the world. However, to this day, no SFT has been constructed yet. One of the main reasons is that there is an insufficient insight into the structural reliability of the SFT. Here, a method to assess the expected...

The submerged floating tunnel (SFT) is a conceptual idea that originates from the 19th century. The idea consists of a tunnel tube floating underwater where it is kept at a fixed depth by its buoyancy and by tethers that are anchored to the seabed and or by floating pontoons at the water surface. The tunnel is placed deep enough to avoid extreme...

Supersonic intakes are essential in assuring proper combustion for operating ramjet engines on cruise missiles. However, due to increasing threats and a rapidly changing service environment, today's intakes do not fit anymore to comply with the new set of requirements to tackle the above challenges. Therefore, a novel supersonic intake design is...

Currently multiple projects investigate the effect of lowering the crest of groynes in the Dutch rivers with the aim to lower the backwater effect of groynes under high water levels. There is a major uncertainty however in the modelling of groynes, and therefore in the prediction of the effect of groyne lowering. Currently submerged groynes are...

A new semi-analytical model is developed to predict the dynamic response of slender gates in combination with an overhang, which are subjected to standing waves. Still little is known for these types of gates for this specific forcing type. The semi-analytical model is still in its development phase and must be validated on its performance. This...

The supersonic split line (SSSL) nozzle has been considered for years in the use of solid rocket motors. The SSSL nozzle is an attractive alternative to the more conventional submerged movable (SM) nozzle. The SSSL nozzle can save up to 43% on nozzle mass and 25% on the thrust vector control (TVC) system mass. The SSSL nozzle also has the...
